Mischa Barton Wanted Headlines Without DUI

Sunday, March 09, 2008

As you probably know, a few blogs reported last week that Mischa turned down a role on Gossip Girl. However, a gossiping 'friend' of TheDarkhat has a source close to the show who says she never formally turned down the role.

Mike Ausiello reported that "For publicity ... Barton's peeps -- desperate to get their client's name in a headline that didn't include the letters "DUI" -- likely leaked the Gossip offer to remind the public of what an in-demand actress she is."

I've heard that this is absolutely true, as her announcement caught the show's EP's completely by surprise.

Mischa has a history of this behavior with her former O.C. boss; two years ago she slipped and told a reporter that Marissa was going to die before the episode aired. Thank God she's not going to be on the show--no spoilers!
